Are you speaking of the 20 to 40 foot depth area south of marker "HP" (Horn Point) and near the mouth of Back Creek? If so, I would expect traffic with larger wakes in this space that is outside speed restricted areas. You are likely to make some better choices.

Jeff
On the chart there is a "South Anchorage" between the entrances to Back and Spa Creeks. It is just west of Horn Point. Perhaps that is the southern anchorage referred to?

That anchorage near Horn point is very rarely used and has a lot of traffic around it. As Jeff said...I have not ever seen 4-5 foot waves, but I am sure after a while with many boats passing by with no speed restriction, it felt pretty bumbpy where you set your anchor.

Having raced many times on Wednesday nights in Annapolis and also having taken a mooring ball on race nights just to be in the thick of the races. My wife and I have head great fun having a bottle of wine and dinner watching others skill as they tack through the field.

Try Annaplis again its a good place, Go under the Spa Creek Bridge or go to back creek and anchor its a lot quieter than the harbor if thats what you wont or go up a couple more creeks on the Severn.

The view of the Annapolis Harbor South Anchorage from Eastport Yacht Club is quite good, and I'm there at least once a week to help with the Opti-Tots program. This summer there have been at least three boats anchored there every day and as many as ten. I think recent enforcement of anchoring restrictions off the Naval Academy wall have increased use of the area off EYC and SSA.
